Mostly everyone knows everyone! There is also a great parks and rec center! The town is growing everyday and new families are brought to the area. The only thing that would make it better is if there was a chick-fil-a.

I love Harrisburg, its not to big not to small. Its just right for anyone looking for that. Harrisburg, NC has great schools!
Harrisburg is a fabulous little town tucked quaintly between Concord and Charlotte NC. It has everything you need with a small town charm. Easily accessible from University City Blvd, you will find this an escape from the craziness of the big city. I would definitely recommend living here.
